Numerical simulation of the drop size distribution in a spray

Abstract : Classical methods of modeling predict a steady-state drop size distribution by using empirical or analytical approaches. In the present analysis, we use the maximum of entropy method as an analytical approach for producing the initial data; then we solve the coagulation equation to approximate the evolution of the drop size distribution. This is done by a quasi-Monte Carlo simulation of the conservation form of the equation. We compare the use of pseudo-random and quasi-random numbers in the simulation. It is shown that the proposed method is able to predict experimental phenomena observed during spray generation.
